stay at home mom jobs to earn extra money

23 Fun + Legitimate Stay At Home Mom Jobs (that make real money)

lways planned to be a stay at home mom, I always knew it was what I wanted… but that didn’t change the reality of our situation.
Just because I WANTED to be at home with my baby didn’t mean that we were financially able to make that happen. I see a ton of “how we lived on one low income” articles floating around… but we live in a very expensive part of the country, and generally, one low income just isn’t going to cut it here.

10 Things I Quit Buying (to Save Money)

If you’ve read many finance books or blogs, you’ve probably heard that in most relationships, there is just one person who is largely in charge of the finances. It’s a generalization, but one that hits the nail on the head with my husband and me.

10 Things I ALWAYS Buy in Bulk to Save Money

I looooooove The Bang Theory. They finally made a TV show that can compete with Friends as far as I’m concerned. (I very much just dated myself didn’t I?) Anyhow, I was watching Big Bang re-runs the other night, the one where Sheldon (who we know has “extra” money, by the way, despite being a poorly paid physicist) goes shopping with Penny and tells her she should be purchasing her tampons in bulk to save money.

Having a Baby on a Budget (don’t go broke!)

Are babies REALLY that expensive? A while back I had a comment on one of my debt free living posts… something to the effect of we “wouldn’t still be debt free after we had kids, because kids are so expensive.” (I was pretty pregnant when I read that comment, so it hit closer to home than it might have a few months before.)
